After browsing through a couple of the k-12 Horizon reports, I commend the New Media Consortium for looking to the future to see where elearning has the potential to go, as well as showing us what is possible by providing examples of various tools currently in use.

Annie R's comment, September 3, 2013 10:55 PM
i think that the mobile learning section (#2) was very interesting for me. as a student, tablets are very easy and a wonderful way to learn, but we still should be exposed to things like textbooks, instruments, and a pencil. Many children now have been completely consumed in their electronics, I am guilty of complaining when i have to put my iPad down.
John Williams's comment, September 4, 2013 3:54 PM
Annie, I couldn't agree with you more unfortunately I do not see this trend reversing. They are no longer teaching penmanship in school it will soon be a lost are and the text book is losing way to the e-book it is already happening. It is cheaper.(ooppps) cost effective. It is doing a disservice to our youth. I went to an old catholic school in addition to being taught cursive we were taught script also, and a love of books is taught at an early age. Technology is a great tool, but it is just that a tool, it wears out it changes the written word is always the same, The language may change depending on the country but it is the same it does not upgrade a classic is still a classic. A Commador 64 is obsolete, by todays standards.
